Fans of Black Panther star Chadwick Boseman have been inquiring about his relationship status since the box office smash dropped mid-February. While some feel co-star Lupita Nyong’o would be the perfect Nakia to his T’Challa, the 40-year-old actor is reportedly dating songstress Taylor Simone Ledward, 27.
Ledward’s own grandmother confirmed the rumored romance, telling In Touch, “They respect each other. She’s very happy, and he is, too.”
Check out photos of the couple below.
Ledward’s sister also confirmed their relationship via social media, telling a fan who asked about him potentially hooking up with Nyong’o that he’s a taken man.
“His real life queen is gorgeous, and together they embody true love. Not to mention they would make some beautiful babies!”
